The finish line area was move to in front of the Dance Hall inside Pioneer Park, allowing spectators to easily watch the last 200 meters of the race. There were also changes to the race course, taking the runners straight down Birch Lane. The Beer Garden was moved inside the Salmon Bake area, along with many post-race festivities. Kyle Hanson would learn from his loss in 2014 and get the win over Rick Lader. Kyle ran over a minute faster than his 2014 race (33:47 for an 8 second win over Lader). Aislinnn Ryan (in town to coach UAF Cross Country Running) would crush the competition with a time of 38:22, her nearest competitor was Elizabeth Spangler in a time of 39:43.
